Wedding Hairstyles for Short Hair

1. Classic Bob

A classic look that we can’t get enough of is the bob haircut. For your wedding, blow-dry your bob straight, leaving some wispy layers on the side of your face. Be sure to use some heat protectant the the TRESemmé Get Sleek Blow Dry Balm to protect your locks before you create this awesome style.

2. Spiky Short

A variation on the pixie haircut, the spiky short style is all about tall hair with some lift. We love this as a way to show-off your facial features as you leave your hair looking fierce and seriously fabulous. Create your signature spikes by using some of the Bed Head by TIGI Manipulator Matte Cream.

Go for the simplest short haircut for your big day with a classic pixie haircut. We love all of the piecey layers that you can spike upward or opt to keep mellow and tamed. This look is also a fun way to rock contrasting two-tones like with this blonde/black hair combo. Be sure to use some hair gel like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Exxtra Hold Sculpting Gel which can help you to mold your short hair in place for your wedding.
